Christmas came early for Alien fans this year! Fox have released three of a six-part dossier which will expose the history of the fictional franchise evil Weyland-Yutani corporation! The images associated with each chronicle seems to look like game concept art, perhaps a lead-up to Fox's upcoming official announcement for their currently untitled Alien game project!

However, this being related to the upcoming Alien game is purely speculation at this time. They could be teasing the rumored Alien TV series as well, or it could be for something completely unrelated entirely - the Alien: Covenant sequel?! The speculation is limitless at this point, but check out the currently released dossiers below and check back tomorrow for when the last three are released as well:

"Day 1: Arrived at the facility. Weyland-Yutani has poured massive resources into this orbital facility. I’ve come to investigate rumors about accidents in a secret research program."

"Day 2: The facility is hiding a terrible secret. Highly aggressive mega-parasites with corrosive blood. They’re breeding them, using them for research."

"Day 3: Breeding program is a house of horrors. They’re torturing and killing people, using them as hosts for the larvae. Where did these people come from?"

What do you think this is for? Let us know YOUR thoughts in the comments section!

The future of Alien

The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.

Treat yourself to some Alien Merchandise!

It does look like game concept art but who knows. It has a vibe of Black Mesa/Half Life/Half Life 2 and that is a good thing.

Game (i hope) or comic book. Maybe TV series. But definitely not AC sequel.

Yeah, sadly I think a new film is the least likely explanation.

I thought it looked like concept art too. I love the facehugger-bombs in the last image. They look like the projectiles below...

Facehugger bombs- seems like a variation of David's black goo bombing.

It seems more exciting than to follow the David story. This could actually be interesting if it is done right. How they described day 1 2 and 3 could be something.

This does seem a bit like the Objective of Alien Resurrection, of course they had to resort to Ripley DNA to obtain the Xenomorph but if the USM Auriga had obtained a Xenomorph via Eggs or a Queen some other way then what we see in the first few of these Dossier Images would be pretty much what we would have seen on the  USM Auriga

Maybe its for a Game, Comic Book Series who knows... i doubt its for a Movie!

These images to give us some Contradictions/In-continuity mainly as they seem like they would be set around the time of Aliens/Alien 3, which would make us Question WHY pursue Ripley in Alien 3?

If this is to be considered Canon, it can only be that the Company Either...

1) Obtained a Xenomorph somewhere else after the failed attempt to obtain one from Ripley in Alien 3 but then after this event that is depicted in the Dossiers they Lose/Destroy all Evidence/Specimens of the Xenomorph leaving the USM Military Scientists having to resort to Clone Ripley DNA about 100 years latter.

2) They obtained the Xenomorph prior to the events of ALIENS but had Lost/Destroyed the Specimens which results in them setting up the Hadleys Hope Rescue Mission.

Does anyone know when and/or why the "Neill Blomkamp Alien Movie" page was dropped on IMDb?  'Cause it's gone NOW.

BigDave

DeaconMember10325 XPMar-13-2019 8:08 AM

Who knows...  the thing with IMDB is it should not always be considered Official, and more so i dont think Neill Blomkamps Alien 5 was ever Officially Press Released by FOX as going ahead.

Although it appears some work had been done behind the scenes to the Project which appeared to be Labeled Red Harvest with Carlos Huante making some concepts, however it had been reported their was NEVER any actual Script but only a 10 Page Dossier about the Plot and Elements that would be seen.  But then a few people had claimed they read Blomkamps Draft, which Cameron Claimed he had read.... yet Ridley Scott claimed there was NEVER no drafts.

The most likely reason for the Removal is simply that NO-PROJECT exists anymore, but it appears James Cameron is trying to drum up support for Blomkamps Canned Alien Project so time will tell.
